Romney Demands More Secrecy from Obama

By Cole

In a speech at a Veterans of Foreign Wars convention yesterday, Mitt Romney finally admitted, “The time for stonewalling is over.”

Unfortunately, he wasn’t talking about his refusal to let voters see exactly how many millions (or billions) in taxes he’s dodged over the years.

He was referring to the Obama administration’s leaks of national security intelligence, and demanded a full investigation (although one is already in progress).

According to Romney, belatedly revealing our military’s brilliance in taking down Osama bin Laden constitutes “contemptible” behavior.

He also called Obama’s treatment of Israel “shabby,” although Israel isn’t complaining.

He also accuses Obama of “betrayal” by undermining our allies.

It’s like watching a Boy Scout try to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together.

Coincidentally, right now Romney is flitting through a bizarre little junket to Israel, Poland, and Great Britain to boost his foreign policy cred. As if being photographed shaking hands with guys who happened to have an hour free on their schedules to meet a powerless presidential wannabe gives him any.

Romney seems to overlook his own ceaseless betrayal of the citizens of Massachusetts who elected him governor, and now have to listen to him kvetch about the healthcare system he established for them because Obama is doing something similar on a national scale.

As most Republicans know — nothing the black guy does can ever be good enough or right — even if they thought of it first themselves.

From what we’ve seen so far of Mitt, he’s woefully lacking in specific, constructive plans, but hard to beat when it comes to duplicity, evasiveness, and secrecy.

Romney as president would make Richard Nixon look as forthcoming as a Penthouse centerfold.

    oh my….I did so have to laugh! =) funny how politicians work, ain’t it? i

    I’m in the U.K. at the moment and got a text message from a friend in London saying simply… “Creepy Romney hits London tomorrow.” I think that says it all when it comes to his foreign policy cred, don’t you?

  3. catsworking says:

    Welcome, goinggraymama! Romney’s so phony on every level, he and his handlers never seem to realize when he’s the pot calling the kettle black. Well, in this case it’s pointless because the kettle IS black.

    What all the news outlets who wrote about this speech seemed to pick up on was Romney’s glaring lack of ideas of his own for improving things. It’s all, “Rah, rah, I love America. America is the greatest country in the world. Oh, beautiful, for spacious skies…” but never any substance.

    I wonder if Romney was able to find a enough hotels overseas that had beds with lids on them, such as he’s accustomed to sleeping in, or if he had to ship his own.

    BTW, Virginia is being hammered ceaselessly by attack ads from both sides. You feel like you have to wear a helmet to watch TV these days.

    but Romney never ate a dog…

  5. catsworking says:

    OK, annie, so what’s your point? This blog is called CATS Working. Do you think we care if someone eats a dog?

    Romney prefers to TORTURE dogs by strapping them to car roofs for long trips. That way, when they get carsick and puke, it flies back and hits the windshield of the car behind him.

    And his wife has a dancing horse who’s going to be in the Olympics.

    Do any of these things make Romney more qualified than Obama to be president? Only in a Republican La-La-Land they do.

  6. annie pelfrey says:

    then i’m in la-la land!
    but i really wanted Ron Paul!

  7. catsworking says:

    Annie, if you wanted Ron Paul, you have some sensible genes in your makeup somewhere. The country really needs a sensible straight-shooter like Paul, only younger. Too bad his son is an asshole.

  8. MorganLF says:

    Romney and Netanyahooo are old business buds from before Bain Like since the 70’s I think it was called Boston something. His trip to London is a fiasco they hate him he was insulting and out of touch.

    Yeah he’d make such a great leader for us. Let’s count it down:

    He’s creepy, secretive ( refuses to disclose tax records that will show how many millions he tithes to his cult) wildly ambitious, wealthy, very secretive ……and he has financial ties to Israel. Bibi is a wolf who will feather his own nest at the expense of his own people. These two have a truly unholy alliance (as in two graspinig power hungry power brokers). The IDEA that Mitt cult follower of young women forced to service old men and produce inbred heirs, is forging a stronger alliance with Israel is such bullshit!

    Mitt has no love of jews .. Mitt loves Mitt. Is this really the best the tea party can do? A rich gay-baiting weirdo? C’mon man how much do republicans hate blacks?

    In his time in office in Massachusetts he was unreacheable, and secluded. He chose a state famous for liberal and forward thinking politics to “make his bones” cause lets face it, Utah won’t do.

    Two generations trying to overtake and manipulate the highest and most powerful political office on the planet…. And no one sees how dangerous this is? The Mormon church is the ANTITHISIS of a free republic! Yer there is nothing subtle about Mitt… He’s a Mormon.

    Is this the future or my country? Is the right wing so willing to make this deal with the devil?

    God protect us all!

  9. MorganLF says:

    Annie pelfrey are you high? Please take your assault weapon insert it in your ass and release.

    What in the name of all of this have to do with eating dog…Or coon which I’m sure you do regularly!

  10. catsworking says:

    Morgan, what I don’t understand is how in the HELL Romney managed to get himself elected governor of Massachusetts in the first place.

    Apparently, he was playing both ends against the middle with Bain to do it, claiming he was still CEO to maintain his MA residency while living in Utah organizing the Olympics. And now it’s come back to bite him in the butt.

    Well, while in Israel Mitt stirred up no love among the Palestinians, and even fanned the flames over ownership of Jerusalem like a God-fearing peace-loving Mormon — NOT.

    Now it’s off to Poland. Let’s see how many more times he can stick his foot in his mouth.

  11. annie pelfrey says:

    wow! some leftys are REALLY mean-spirited!
    and very closed-minded.
    and PLEASE stop playing the race card.

  12. catsworking says:

    Annie, unfortunately, it wasn’t the “leftys” who first played the race card. Seems to me it’s the conservatives who are determined to flush this country down the toilet rather than cooperate with anything our black president tries to do to move forward.

    Sure, sure, you can protest that it has nothing to do with his race, but we both know that it DOES for many people. The same ones who look down their noses on gays, women, and anybody else who isn’t a white male. And some befuddled females who don’t realize they’ve aligned themselves with men who’d be happy to take away their right to vote, own property, have access to good jobs and equal pay, and make decisions about their own bodies so men can grab all the power back.

  13. annie pelfrey says:

    sorry, i’m still in shock that a blogger would tell me what to do with “my” assault weapon while i’m eating “coon”.
    that’s just rude and uncalled for.

  14. catsworking says:

    Annie, I have to agree with you again. Morgan isn’t a blogger, she’s a commenter. She’s been rude and uncalled for as long as we’ve known her, but to keep it all honest, Karen rarely censors comments unless they cross the line into death threats. A commenter once told Karen they hoped she dies and we cats eat her eyeballs and she let it through, so letting a possible double entendre like “coon” be published after Morgan had just been talking about shooting possums seemed relatively mild.

    Maybe you can explain why people who get the most bent over perceived racial slights tend to be closet racists.

  15. annie pelfrey says:

    i feel better now.
    i don’t understand your question. i wasn’t brought up in a bigoted environment,
    BUT- i have the same question for people who are so anti-gay.
    it doesn’t corncern me, i don’t care…

  16. catsworking says:

    Annie, now I don’t remember the question! 😉

    Racial and religious bigotry and homophobia go hand-in-hand. I must confess I’m a bit of a religious bigot because Mormonism does give every appearance of being a cult, and I can’t imagine how anybody with a well-functioning mind would buy into it (or any organized religion for that matter, they’re all flawed). It does embrace many mainstream Christian values, so why preach them in such a sneaky, closed way unless there’s something to hide?

    I don’t care if people choose to be Mormons, but I do take offense when they come knocking on my door and try to rope me in. I’d NEVER do that to them!

  17. annie pelfrey says:

    well, i’m supposedly “awhiskeypalian”, but have never gotten into the groove of religion.
    to be REALLY impolite- i feel that any devout person is selfish.
    it’s as tho all they care about is doing for their religion, instead of just treating others without judgement.

  18. catsworking says:

    Annie, if you’re “awhiskeypalian,” then we cats are “Whiskerpalians.”

    I’ve read that Mormons are expected to tithe 10% of their gross income (not net, after taxes) to the church, and it keeps many of them in dire financial straits. And that’s why you’ll find that Mormons are more prone to get involved in multilevel marketing deals where they’re pushing skincare products, nutritional supplements, etc., on the side.

  19. MorganLF says:

    My comment was a direct response to the scurrilous slur” but Romney never ate a dog.”

    Are we to believe as the right wing nuts are repeating, that our Presdent is a dog eating foreigner? Talk about vile….

    I thought my coon comment was a rather clever rebuttal of an oafish declaration. Clearly it hit home.

  20. catsworking says:

    Morgan, when you get on a roll, you can give lessons in eloquence.

    We have no idea what Romney eats behind closed doors, and we’re never likely to find out. The guy’s such a secretive creep, he’s even giving Harry Reid the heebie-jeebies.
